Abstract (en)

[origin: US5948742A] An aerosol cleaning composition for hard surfaces is provided with a surprisingly enhanced bathroom soil removal capability. The dispensable includes: (a) an anionic, nonionic, amphoteric surfactant, and mixtures thereof with optionally, a quaternary ammonium surfactant, the total amount of said surfactant being present in a cleaning effective amount; (b) at least one water-soluble or dispersible organic solvent having a vapor pressure of at least 0.001 mm Hg at 25 DEG C., said at least one organic solvent present in a solubilizing-or dispersion-effective amount; (c) a chelating agent selected from the group consisting of tri- or tetrapotassium ethylenediamine-tetraacetate (potassium EDTA), tri- or tetraammonium ethylenediamine-tetraacetate (ammonium EDTA) and mixtures thereof, said chelating agent present in an amount effective to enhance bathroom soil removal in said composition; (d) an effective amount of a propellant; and (e) the remainder, water. The preferred nonionic surfactant is an alkyl polyglycoside which provides a formulation stable to containment within a tin-plated steel can and which also facilitates processing of the composition.
